{Petite Friendly} Orchid Maxi Dress

J. Crew Factory maxi dress (on sale and comes in petite sizes!) | Headbands of Hope gold headband c/o | Jack Rogers Navajo sandals (old color) | Similar mini tote | Similar Kendra Scott necklace | Loren Hope earrings | Prada sunglasses (rented) c/o Ditto (use code "CARALINASTYLE" for your first month free!)

I usually avoid maxi dresses, because at 5'2" they are almost always too long for me. I have never even tried on one until recently, I always just assumed they would never work. However, this one from J. Crew Factory comes in petite sizes, and it's a perfect length! For reference, I'm wearing a 00 petite. It also comes in black, but I personally love this orchid color. It has slits on both sides that come up to the knee area, which makes it pretty easy to walk in. I think the gathering at the waist also gives the illusion of my legs being longer than they are, which I always tend to go for! And to top it all off, it has recently been moved to the clearance section of their website!

I'm also wearing another headband from Headbands of Hope in today's post. A wore another one of their headbands recently in this post, where I also explained more about this great company that gives back to children with cancer. For every headband that is bought, one is given to a pediatric cancer patient!

Thanks for reading!
